CarFest South

Laverstoke Park Farm 

Carfest South is very happy to be returning to its rightful home at Laverstoke Park Farm, Hampshire. The 2,500 acres farm, near Overton, is owned by ex-racing driver and 1979 Formula 1 World Champion Jody Scheckter.

Laverstoke is a family-run farm that combines 21st century science with environmentally friendly farming methods to create a place that is both organic and biodynamic.

At the very heart of the farm, is its wonderful herd of Asian Water Buffalo. This rare-breed of buffalo produces milk for the farm, which has won over a hundred awards for its produce over the years. Laverstoke Park Farm has over 1,500 ‘friendly and curious’ buffalo, alongside 400 cattle, 1,600 sheep and several hundred chickens, plus  pigs and boars. The range of products made on the farm includes cheese, ice-cream, biltong, ale and sparkling wine. 

CarFest North

Bolesworth Castle

CarFest North is delighted to have found a new home at Bolesworth Castle, Cheshire.

Bolesworth Castle sits in a beautiful parkland setting and provides CarFest North with a wonderful backdrop of lakes, rolling hills and trees.

The castle has been home to the Barbour family since 1856 and is at the heart of a 6,500 acre estate which is home to many small businesses (employing over 1,000 people).  Bolesworth Estate also provides homes for local people and their farmers are amongst the best in the business , with plenty of dairy cows to eat all the lush Cheshire grass!

Our new venue for CarFest North is also home to horsepower of a different kind and one of the top showjumping events in the country - The Bolesworth International which this year is on 16-19 June 2016.

Nina Barbour and her team look forward to welcoming CarFest North to beautiful Bolesworth.
